    How and when did you get your first G-Shock?

    I sent away for mine from an ad in the back of a magazine in 1983. The face had a pattern of bricks on it. I think it cost $35.

    I actually bought my first one only 6 or 7 years ago and it was on this forum. I hadn't really been a fan of digital, but I kind of fell in love with a Black Helios Frogman.

    I bought my first G- shock (Riseman) in 2012 after watching a video review done by fwupow on YouTube...

    My first one was a GW-2310-1 that I purchased on eBay in January 2014. It's my default watch to wear when I don't want to worry about damaging my watch. I've added six more Gs in the past two years.

    My first G Shock was a DW9000 which I received in 1999 as a gift from one of my cousins. Messed it up and killed it within two years - probably didn't realize at that time how well the G was worth.
    The next G only came up in 2015 after joining WUS!!!!

    Re: How and when did you get your first G-Shock?

    It was 1989, and one of my co-workers had a DW-5600 and I wanted one. Went to the BEST Catalog Store (now defunct) in Torrance, CA (I was living in Southern California at the time) and bought a black one for $39.00. A few months later, I bought a yellow one. Both were screwback models and all stainless steel.

    I always wore the black one and went through 2 straps and 3 batteries on it. In 2007, I sold it to a collector on eBay for over $90. In 2002, I sold the yellow one for over $125. Wish I would have kept them both!!!

    G7900-1 bought in 2011.
    Was after a new watch for Xmas.
    Can't remember why I wanted a G, but it sure sparked a fire.

    Re: How and when did you get your first G-Shock?

    Received my first one, a DW-6900 in 1996 from my grandfather, though I picked it out of the catelogue myself. I remember wanting a mudman at the time, but was given a 11,000 JPY budget

    First I bought myself was in 2012, a G-5600E as a first watch I bought with money I made myself, that watch rekindled my passion for G. Still got both in working order

    Re: How and when did you get your first G-Shock?

    My first Casio was a F-28W which i saw in many store windows at around 1992.
    Back then i had a tight budget and found the 15$ for it quite expensive.
    Usual no-name digitals were floating the market back then for 5$ or so.

    So i bought this premium price digital...
    It lastet like 18 years on its first battery, so it was worth the premium price tag!
    It lived long enough to get digitally pictured.
    I killed it by trying an battery exchange shortly after this pic was taken....
